Just last week, we got a look at the refreshed interior in the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali, picking out a few key details of the upcoming mid-cycle enhancement (MCE). Now, GM Authority is bringing you the upcoming pickup’s refreshed corporate cousin, the Chevrolet Silverado, with tantalizing hints about the 2022 Silverado interior features.
The first thing that stands out is a big infotainment screen integrated with the center stack. As we can see, the infotainment readout in the 2022 Silverado interior doesn’t come with a “floating” design like the all-new 2021 Chevy Suburban or 2021 Chevy Tahoe. Rather, the screen appears to offer an integrated design similar to the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali.
Although it’s covered in a heavy layer of camouflage, we can still see that the screen in the 2022 Silverado interior is larger than the screen in the current 2019 and 2021 model year vehicles. The exact size and aspect ratio have yet to be determined, but the extra screen real estate will undoubtedly help address the perceived shortcoming of the new Silverado’s interior.
What’s more, we see a new steering wheel with the telltale GM Super Cruise indicator along the top of the rim, suggesting that the 2022 Silverado interior is setup for semi-autonomous, hands-free driving on the freeway.
Another interesting detail is the lack of a column-mounted shifter, which suggests the 2022 Silverado interior will instead employ a push-button shifter similar to the next-generation 2021 GMC Yukon.
The move to a push-button shifter is a significant departure from the column-mounted shifter used previously. The upcoming 2022 GMC Sierra is also expected to make the move to a push-button layout, which, according to a previous GM Authority poll, has split fans, with 58 percent of poll responders preferring a column-mounted shifter, and 42 percent of poll responders liking the new push-button layout.
